Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children, I am calling you to be one with my Son in spirit. I am calling you, through prayer, and the Holy Mass when my Son unites Himself with you in a special way, to try to be like Him; that, like Him, you may always be ready to carry out God's will and not seek the fulfillment of your own. Because, my children, it is according to God's will that you are and that you exist, and without God's will you are nothing. As a mother, I am asking you to speak about the glory of God with your life because, in that way, you will also glorify yourself in accordance to His will. Show humility and love for your neighbor to everyone. Through such humility and love, my Son saved you and opened the way for you to the Heavenly Father. I implore you to keep opening the way to the Heavenly Father for all those who have not come to know Him and have not opened their hearts to His love. By your life, open the way to all those who still wander in search of the truth. My children, be my apostles who have not lived in vain. Do not forget that you will come before the Heavenly Father and tell Him about yourself. Be ready! Again I am warning you, pray for those whom my Son called, whose hands He blessed and whom He gave as a gift to you. Pray, pray, pray for your shepherds. Thank you." (April 2, 2013 Mirjana)
Our Lady speaks to us of unity with her Son, Jesus, so that we can become like Him. She wants us to be like Jesus in that we seek God's will and not our own. This is the great mystery of our human history - that we were created free, and in that freedom invited to live the plan of the Creator, but we failed. And so Jesus came to lead us back to that creative will of the Father. It is a mystery that we face every day, every minute of every day, how to be united to Jesus, and hence to the Father through the living out of His will for us.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church has a beautiful passage about the Lord's Prayer, specifically, "Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven." A careful reading of this passage shows parallels with Our Lady's message! I offer it to you below:
The Father wants us to be like Jesus, submitted to His most loving will for us, out of love and trust, and in true freedom. We can learn obedience from Jesus, by contemplating His life on earth, and learning how to trust the Father, and say "yes" to His beautiful plan. Jesus came to draw us into that beautiful plan of love. Jesus actually did it all for us. We have only to unite ourselves to Him, and we will become part of that plan even now! Jesus is the "Way".
May Our Lady's desire for us become a reality. May we be one with her Son in spirit and thus become one in the Father's will for us!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
